Anyone ever seen a 2014 that caught on fire?

Came across this on eBay and was intrigued.

It either ran into a Tesla or there's a reason only mid-grade is recommended for the Hemi V8.

"Chrysler Group is recalling nearly 900,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango sport utility vehicles, following dozens of reports that suggest the electrical components in the sun visor vanity mirrors may short circuit and catch fire."

Re: Anyone ever seen a 2014 that caught on fire?

Yeah - I thought headliner fire at first too but kinda looks like it started in the engine area under the hood. Although it is possible that the fire spread in the cabin then through the dash into the engine area but I doubt it. I had seen a verified headliner fire damage online somewhere and it didn't spread to the engine area like this one and it didn't breach the firewall into the engine area.

Re: Anyone ever seen a 2014 that caught on fire?

fires also start from accessories plugged into the 12v outlets.. I knew of more than 1 JK where people bought cheap chinese 12v to USB adaptors for their cell phone and leave it plugged into the 12v outlet that always has power.. they can and do start fires.
